Fugro has been awarded the geotechnical investigation contract for Sites III and IV at the Borssele wind area, off the Zeeland coast. The work is being undertaken on behalf of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency, part of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, and constitutes the final investigation at the Borssele wind farm sites before the final tender bidding rounds begin. This contract follows the previous geotechnical, geophysical and metocean investigations at the Borssele development. Fugro will execute boreholes with various in situ testing programmes and seabed cone penetration testing. Its experienced geoconsultancy engineers and geologists will provide an integrated geological ground model, which will provide objective and high quality data for the developers preparing to submit tenders. The programme will entail a large advanced testing programme at Fugroâs specialised laboratory in Wallingford.
